Gaza Threat Group Targeting Israeli Organizations
“Researchers at Trend Micro have been monitoring the activities of a threat group focusing its efforts on stealing sensitive information from Israeli organizations.
Based on the malware samples analyzed by the security firm, the campaign, dubbed Operation Arid Viper, has been ongoing since mid-2013. Experts believe the attackers have ‘strong Arab ties’ and they are located in Gaza, Palestine.
The list of targets includes a government office, a military organization, an academic institution, and transport service/infrastructure providers based in Israel. Several unidentified Israeli individuals and an academic institution in Kuwait have also been targeted, Trend Micro said.”
